Well, today marks one full year since I started this blog. It was on December 31, 2007 I published my first blog. I gotta tell you I had apprehensions about it. I wondered what I would find to write about and if anyone would read it. I am not a writer by any means. To the best of my recollection I have never taken a writing class, however, I have put it on my "bucket list". I would love to take a writing class or two. Here are some statistics about my blog in the last year.
I had 226 blogs last year. I had 23,966 readers logged into my blog. They spent an average of 2.26 minutes reading it for a total of 54,163.16 minutes or 89 hours. That translates into 38 days of continuous reading 24/7. All of that translates into well over a month. To me, that is awesome. I also received 418 comments. I love your comments - all of them.
The busiest month was January with 3,490 visits (Thanks Howard) and second busiest was December with 2,709. I thank each and everyone of my readers who contributed to these numbers. You don't know how that warms my heart.
You may or may not have noticed I begin and end my blog the same way each time. Well, and "That's it for today". Reminders of my parents and family -- a link to our past and a bridge to our future.
I know I will never make three million readers like Tioga George but I will keep writin' if you keep readin'.
And in the words of my father "That's it for Today!"
